From 25 September 2013, first home owners purchasing or building a new home may be eligible to receive a grant of $10,000. First home owners purchasing an established home may be eligible for a $3,000 grant.
From 1 January 2010, in Western Australia, there will be a cap on the total value of buying or building a home for which the first home owner grant will be payable.
The cap limits the total value of properties (i.e. total value of home and land) to $750,000 or less, or if the home is located North of the 26th parallel to $1,000,000 or less. For more information on the cap visit
